5 Stars! I WANT AN ANGEL OF MY OWN!! I thought I would be lost when I started this, since it's been a while that the last book was released, but it was easy to jump back in. Damn this was HOT! Flap those wings baby and cool me down!! Aaron was freakin' adorable and YOWZA that whole "your essence calls to me" thing...TURNED ME ON!! I admit it, so there!! Nostrils were flaring when the other "single" Fallens could sense it too...WOW...angel testosterone...makes me quiver all over!! Loved Samantha ...more

My Thoughts:

Samantha is a semi-professional robber who has the ability to manipulate electrical signals by focusing her energy to the task at hand. Her mother died several years before and her stepfather was the one who taught her more about robbing. Ever since her Mom's "accident" Samantha and her Dad lost their trust in the angels so they basically went into hiding and lived under the radar by robbing and selling their new treasures on the black market.

Aaron is another one of our sexy Fallen a

My rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

"Never touch an angel's wings unless you mean to touch more of him."


Sitting high upon a rooftop in the city of Chicago, fallen angel Aaron watches and waits. His chest fills with pride as he spies his intended, the beautiful Samantha Benson, slip in and out of the shadows then ultimately break into a museum.

Samantha is all alone in the world and finding it hard to bend to the new rules set in place a year pri

Rosalie Lario/ For Want of an Angel (The Fallen Warriors Series)
Aaron is one of the Fallen and he’s found his mate Samantha, a cat burglar, who can manipulate and interfere with electrical signals. Samantha believes all angels are evil and has real trust issues where angels are concerned. When Aaron shows up and bungles one of her heists, she expects the worst.

Aaron’s wife betrayed him and he believed he’d never find another mate. So when he finds Samantha, he will do anything to conv

Another great book in the series. Love Aaron and Samantha! I especially love that Samantha is a thief and she's got the consortium over a barrel in the sense they can never admit anything was stolen cause there is supposed to be no crime in the society the angels have created!

Her and Aaron had some explosive chemistry between them and I loved her confidence. I was sad in the sense that we had our first character death in the series but relieved that the character at least didn't suffer as his br

I love this series. These are one of my first sexy fallen angels I have ever read about so they hold that special black winged place in my heart.

These books even though we are dealing with Angels is not very religious like or preachy. Angels have taken over Earth. They are using humans pretty much as slaves but the humans are clueless. Once they get what they need from them, then bye bye human race. But our very sexy Fallen Angels are not okay with this and are on a mission to show humans what i

this is it!!,, what I've been waiting for.. about damn time the battle begin (even in a very early way).

and so the story of Aaron and Samantha.. damn hot, 2 strong characters whom supported each other.

As usual, the progress of their love story is very quick but intense..

I always fall for the shirtless angels.. they just the ones FALLEN for..

I really like this series. My only complaint is the at the books are so short and this one ended abruptly, it felt like there should be more. I look forward to the next in this series to see how the fallen come back to stop the Angels from destroying the humans. Quite an interesting world the author has created.

I like the story and everything in it but for me I feel like they are rushing into everything and if the Author just paid a little more attention and added a little bit more between their first contact and the deed itself, the books would be a 5 star.
